Chief Crazy Horse

Republican River 1845,
Uncommonly handsome man,
Physically perfect,
Born warrior with plan.

While not the equal of Gall,
A true type of brave,
Highest ideal of the Sioux,
Too early to grave.

War against the Gros Ventres,
Leader, youth with heart,
Sixteen years of age then,
“Peerless” warrior set apart.

Custer’s last Stand,
Ta’ Shunke Witko to blame,
One of the greatest of Indians,
And deserved of fame.
